Marist Science Students Present and Publish their Undergraduate Research

Many students become involved in high quality undergraduate students during their studies.   Ten out eleven of our science programs require research, internship or another type of experiential learning.  Last year many published as co-authors and/or  presented their research at regional or national meetings including (* denotes student):
